I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday. My day went pretty well. I ended up cooking most of the Easter meal, kind of on accident, but everyone was very complimentery of the food. I made sweet potatoes, corn pudding, and a broccoli cheese dish from Cook's Illustrated. The main dish was a ham. My husband's grandmother brought out an ice cream cake for dessert! What a treat! We ate at my in-laws' house, as usual. In the afternoon we cut up some beef. My sister-in-law brought her fiancee out to the ranch for the weekend, and it was nice to get to know him a little better. I give him the thumbs up. The weather was gorgeous, the food was good, the company was pleasant, so all in all it was a great holiday. For Lent, I gave up reading blogs, which is kind of challenging when you have your own blog. I am looking forward to catching up on what's been going on around the blogosphere this week! Happy Easter!
